Change Management™ - Practitioner

Organisations often invest heavily in changing systems and processes as they hope to achieve real and measurable gains from these projects. Poor change management can hurt your bottom-line more than you think. This is where good and effective Change Management can bring your people along for the journey and prepare them to 'take up the new'.

APMG-accredited Change Management training + exam

This three-day Foundation course is one of Project Laneways' flagship business training courses and is designed to provide you with the skills and techniques you need to successfully manage change in a business environment. Included is a 40 minute multiple-choice exam on the third day.

The training is presented as a blend of Change Management theory and practical examples. You'll learn about the dynamics of change at the individual, team and organisational level. You'll also learn practical Change Management skills for facilitating change, and be able to plan for change and potential problems.

The Foundation course is suitable for all project managers, program managers and team members.

The course covers:

  • Individuals: How they learn, what motivates them  and how they react to change.
  • Organisations: Different approaches to organisational change, emergent versus planned change, typical roles in change, and organisational culture.
  • Communications and stakeholder engagement: best practices in communications and how to identify, segment and engage with stakeholders.
  • Change Practice: Assessing the change impact, preparing for change, and dealing with resistance.

Participants will receive:

  • A copy of “The Effective Change Manager's Handbook", endorsed by the Change Management Institute and aligned, chapter by chapter, to their Change Management Body of Knowledge. The syllabus and exam are based on this book
  • A copy of our “Portable Principles of Change Management” Handout, a pocket sized study guide
  • Copies of all the slides with additional notes
  • A selection of templates and tools
  • Practice questions for the Foundation exam

**Course preparation and homework

**

You're expected to read the Project Laneways reading material which will be emailed to you upon confirmation of your booking. This should take approximately four hours and includes an extensive overview of Change Management and sample exam questions.

There is approximately 1 hour of homework to be completed in the  evenings of the first two days of the Foundation Course. This consists mainly of sample questions along with answers and explanations. We find that this improves the outcome and consolidates the day's learning.

Advanced course

Once you've successfully passed your Foundation exam, you'll qualify to join our elite group of candidates looking to take their change management skills to the next level - the Practitioner level - one of the highest forms of project management certification training available in New Zealand today.
